Celebrity Apprentice star joins former WWE divas

MIAMI HERALD WRITER

Former World Wrestling Entertainment divas Taryn “Tiffany” Terrell, Jillian Hall and Maria Kanellis are coming to a night club near you.

The DivaMania tour kicks off in 2011, with Kanellis returning to the road on a more frequent basis since she was released by WWE in February. The reduction in travel was an adjustment for the “Celebrity Apprentice” star.

“I’m home more. It’s very strange actually,” said Kanellis, who spent nearly six years with WWE.

“I think the dogs remember me now. It’s weird because you forget how busy you are when you are on the road. You’re on the road four or five days a week and sometimes going internationally for two weeks at a time, three weeks at a time. When you’re doing it, you don’t realize how crazy and hectic it is. Your body has to adjust to it.”

• In the months after her exit, Kanellis saw many other friends in the business leave the company for one reason or another.

“It’s very funny because I still have friends within WWE, and now seeing some of the other girls released, I’m so surprised,” said Kanellis.

“There was a whole group of us that came in together. It was me, Melina, Mickie [James], Jillian [Hall]. We all came in about the same time, and a lot of us are no longer there anymore. It’s kind of funny how we all went in around the same time and left around the same time. I’m just happy about the future.”

For the Playboy cover girl, the immediate future doesn’t involve wrestling.

“I never actually talked to [TNA] too much about it,” said Kanellis.

“ I’m not saying that I will never do it, but what I am saying is I’m completely focused on my acting career right now, and with pilot season coming up, I’m just super excited to be out here doing that. I’m in acting classes and working my tail off. I’ve been on tons of auditions.”
